A Random Thing Or Two-sday

Vegan Leather Jacket (similar)
LOFT White Cotton Tee
LOFT Modern Skinny Jeans in Black
Vans 'Classic' Slip-On Sneaker
Target Knit Beanie

1. These photos are probably some of my favorite "style" photos I have taken. It is an honest portrayal of motherhood and what it looks like behind the scenes. Kids with no pants on crawling up your legs and a lot of goofiness. I like it. In other news, these slip ons have been in my closet since I was 16. Another way of putting that is they have been in my closet for over a decade. When did I get so OLD?! Either way, I am glad I held onto them, but still slightly weirded out that I officially have items in my closet which are old enough to have gone through the cycle of going out of fashion and then back in again.

2. Fact: A baby is born in the world every three seconds (source).

3. I know I mostly talk about The Bachelor on my Facebook and Twitter, but I just have to spill it on here, too. This season is driving me bonkers. I had high hopes for Prince Farming, but the cheese factor on this season is through the roof. Like, someone set a rocket into space through the roof. Again, this can probably be attributed to the fact that I am getting older and am now older than half of the girls. But, still. It seems so staged! And I haven't watched last night's episode, so no spoilers!

4. As I was driving home today, I pulled up next to a guy at a red light. At first it looked like he was head banging and jamming out to some funky music all by his lonesome. I was thinking, Whoa this guy likes to party! It brought a huge smile to my face. But then I saw some tiny hands flailing in the back seat and rolled my car forward a couple inches to see the cutest little boy intently copying his dad's dance moves. Even though there were lots of people who could see them, it was just the two of them in their own father-son world, and it reminded how precious that bond with a dad is. I love witnessing small, yet powerful, human connections like that.

5. Would you rather age only from the neck up or age only from the neck down?

I love seeing you with those sweet sweet boys. And the Bach. It is terrible! It's like they're using every farmer stereotype out there yet Chris doesn't even own animals! Get it together ABC. Broaden your horizons. Quit staging the crap out of these things. Also, the girllllssss. They are no bueno. Honestly, there is maybe one I could actually see heading to the farm. And that's a strong maybe. We must discuss. Aging from the neck up? Then I could still use my body and my knees wouldn't fail me. Or my vanity wants to say neck down. Too tough, too tough! Reveal your choice!

Those photos and thoughts are so sweet! I'd like to age from the neck up. I love laugh lines, and to be able to keep my agility? Heck yeah! As long as I don't have to get the old lady short curled hair.

I could arrange the baby and beanies thing. Oh,The Bachelor. That poor, sad Bachelor. I can't wait for it to be over.

You should probably start writing for ABC. You would be dynamite. You make solid points with the would you rather. I am going to go for the vanity card and say neck up. I could wear turtle necks and pants forever. And I feel like I know plenty of elderly people with very active and healthy bodies, even into their 80's. However, there is no hiding wrinkles and aging on the face, no matter how much plastic surgery is done. In fact, it just makes everything look worse. So my final answer is neck up.

Thank you! I see your point, although old lady hair is included. It's a total game changer! ;)
